I am curious what project and yarn each of us is going to try and why.
Do you need help picking a first time project and yarn? Here are some tips:
- worsted weight is great for beginning projects because it is easy to see the
stitches and "read" your work.
- cotton/silk/bamboo/acrylic re NOT a good fiber choice for first
project. They don't have much give so any inconsistencies in stitches
tend to show up more. Wool/alpaca/blends are more forgiving and will also respond
well to blocking to even out stitch gauge and shaping.
Balance the complication - simple stitches or single color with more advanced
shaping OR several stitch types or colors with simple shaping. Since all
crochet stitches are based on the chain, don't be afraid of trying a pattern
with more than single crochet and double crochet stitches. We can help
you through the tricky parts.
Most of all, pick a yarn and pattern that you really love to invest your time
and talent in!
